The Google Wifi isn't a bad looking router (or three) on its own, and it's pretty easy to stick it anywhere in your house without offending anyone. However, every home is different and you might want something a little more elegant and organized than just plonking a node down on a window sill.
Thanks to its popularity and the fact it's a pretty simple shape, there are plenty of options out there for mounting the Google Wifi to a wall or even a ceiling. None are very expensive and there's something out there to suit all tastes.
Here, we've rounded up the best of the bunch.
- Wall Mount Holder for Google Wifi System by Koroao
- Mount Genie The Spot
- Echogear Outlet Shelf
- Deeroll Wall Mount
- OkeMeeo Google WiFi Wall Mount
- LykusSource Wall Mount
- Anco Precision Wall Mount for Google WiFi
- HumanCentric Google WiFi Mount
This mount from Koroao is good for both walls and ceilings, and completely hides the base and cables of the Google Wifi. It attaches using two screws and has silicon pads on the rear to help keep a slip-free fit.
There's a little notch on the mount just large enough to feed the power cable and Ethernet cable through. It's all plastic, all white like the Google Wifi and only costs $13. Or you can get a two pack for $19 and a three pack for $26, which is excellent considering you likely don't just have a single Google Wifi.
If you just want to mount your Google Wifi close to a wall outlet or you want to hide the cables easily, The Spot is the mount for you. It's a mount with an additional bracket which will rest around the plug of your Google Wifi, supporting the unit below the socket powering it.
The Google Wifi just drops in, but the neat thing about this mount is that the rear of it has enough space to coil up the excess power cable completely out of sight. So you end up with a really neat and tidy setup.
But, if you need the network cable, there's still a cutout on the bottom to feed that through. And it costs less than $10, which makes it a great value as well.
This isn't just a mount for your Google Wifi, but it'll do a great job of it anyway. The Echogear Outlet Shelf is designed to hold anything up to 10lbs in weight, which can include a Google Home or Amazon Echo, even a Sonos One, or, keeping with the theme, your Google Wifi nodes.
It's a simple plastic shelf that fits around a wall outlet and has cable routing built in to keep everything tidy.
It's a novel way to keep cable mess under control, and the most technical thing you'll need to do is remove the existing wall plate around your outlet. A great little mount for $15.
The most simple and minimalist mount in the list, this wall mount from Deeroll is a semi-circle that screws to the wall and you just sort of drop the Google Wifi in on its side.
The plastic used to make it is a similar material and a perfect color match to the Google Wifi, and from the front, it almost disappears entirely. Despite this, there's enough space at the back to wind the excess power cable around and keep it all looking neat.
A single mount costs just $9, but if you need more, you can get a three pack for $24 and save a little bit over buying them individually.
If you want a super clean wall setup, OkeMeeo has you covered. Its mount works on walls or ceilings and allows you to route the power and Ethernet cables. It mounts with one screw, and you can remove the Google WiFi without taking the mount down if you need to do so. There are also four silicon pads on the back side so your wall and ceiling don't get scratched up. This isn't a complete in-wall solution, but it's a nice middle ground for both homeowners and apartment dwellers.
OkeMeeo's Google Wifi Wall Mount is available in a single pack for $12, and a three-pack for $23.
Another in-between mount is from LykusSource. Its wall mount attaches to the wall with four small screws, and it has built-in cable management for the power supply. This is strictly a wall mount since it's basically a small shelf, so look elsewhere if you want something for the ceiling. You still get easy access to the Ethernet ports if you need them, and you can clearly see the status light to figure out why your Wi-Fi isn't working.
LykusSource's Wall Mount is available in a single pack for $8.50, a two-pack for $15, and a three-pack for $21.
One more mount that's strictly for walls is from Anco. Rather than a shelf, this is more of a cradle for the router. You can leave the cables loose, run them behind the walls or invest in a cable channel. You have easy access to all the ports at the bottom, so you can still plug your laptop into Ethernet if need be. Once the router is mounted, it's just a white dot on your wall. Since the router is in plain view, you won't have any reception problems with any of your devices.
Arco's Precision Wall Mount is available in a single pack for $9, a two-pack for $15 and a three-pack for $20.
If you want something really custom, HumanCentric has the mount for you. You'll need to route your power and Ethernet cables behind the wall for this mount, so it's not for apartment dwellers. This will work on either walls or ceilings, so feel free to mount it wherever you get the best reception. It includes washers, screws, drywall mounts, and everything else you'll need to mount it — minus a drill — so no need to make a trip to the hardware store. Once it's mounted, it's mounted — no taking the Google WiFi out without the mount.
HumanCentric's Google WiFi Wall Mount is available in a single pack for $10.
